Rarest Color Combo GE L-570 Series - Yellow/Blue
Rare + Beautiful Art Deco 1941 General Electric light yellow with marbleized blue trim L-571 Catalin Radio. This blue trim example is one of only a handful know to exist, it is extremely rare. The blue trim is heavily marbleized, translucent and awesome looking. The light/medium yellow cabinet has faint clear and lighter yellow marbleizing that add depth. This model GE is one of only two Catalin radios ever manufactured by General Electric and made in 1941. The design of this radio while boxy has numerous Art Deco elements such as the louvered grill, semi-circle handle and fluted knobs.
This beautiful set is in great condition with no cracks, chips, tube burns or repairs to the cabinet or trim. The marbleized blue catalin trim is original to the radio and is also perfect with no chips, cracks or repairs. The Catalin cabinet has taken on a beautiful and light/medium yellow patina after having been polished back to the original alabaster color about 4 years ago. Radio retains the original bottom paper label and back panel. Dial plastic is a correct replacement. This great radio would make a great addition to any radio or Art Deco collection.
Radio measures: 9.5" wide x 6.25" high x 6" deep. This set is sold "as-is + untested", the chassis seems complete. Set is being sold as a "non-working" vintage electronic device that should be gone over by a qualified technician.
